Just Us Twelve Times: May

Last night was a super big deal for me!  It was Nigel’s Kindergarden Graduation!  This signifies the ending of a second year of homeschooling him!  I am so proud of all we have accomplished this past year it is amazing to see how much he as grown.  He has learned to read and gained so many math and language skills.  It is the most precious thing I could possibly do on this earth!  I know I have posted before on homeschooling, but I can not say enough about how thankful I am for the opportunity to teach my children.  Psalm 90:12 says “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  Numbering my days, cherishing my days, taking a few hours from work and cleaning and social media to teach and train my child is the greatest gift to me.   My sweet Grandma came to watch and here she is with Berlin:   DSC_9173 The graduates were all children who are part of my homeschool group called CHEW, Christian Home Educators of Wilmington.  Nigel was by far the most shy, but he warmed up to them and had so much fun playing with all the other children.
